Plain-clothes officers will be at busy intersections, radioing uniformed police officers to pull over drivers who are committing traffic violations.

Some dangerous intersections in Henderson, which may see extra enforcement include:

  • Horizon Ridge Parkway and Eastern Avenue
  • Eastern Avenue and St. Rose Parkway

Officers will be looking for drivers running red lights, following too closely, driving aggressively, making unsafe lane changes, failing to yield to pedestrians and distracted driving.
